Sharpening defences against the blade of terrorism : Comments

By Muhammad Faizal Bin Abdul Rahman, published 12/10/2016

Daesh's calls for more lone wolf attacks including with the use of knife tactics buttress the larger strategy of utilising returning foreign fighters.

So far, the 'lone wolves' responding to the call have proved, in Australia at least, where it most matters to us, to be poor silly fools with the brains of a rabbit rather than a wolf.

Knife attacks? Metal detectors and extreme prejudice responses!

Misleading the public/the Authorities?

Space age lie detection, bugs, and electronic surveillance covertly deployed in high security jails and at places the potential terrorist needs to use almost daily! [If only that had been available and in use before 9/11!]

And where detected? Automatic repatriation if available or incarceration for the term of a natural life?

Preferably in some offshore installation?

Devils Island has long since been abandoned but remains an Island prison few have ever escaped from!

"Knife attacks? Metal detectors and extreme prejudice responses!"

I'll go along with the response but metal detectors are no good against plastic knives.

abc news post - Counter-terrorism police arrest two men in Sydney
Updated 39 minutes ago

Counter-terrorism police have arrested two men over an incident in Sydney's south-west.

Sources have told the ABC one of the men was wielding a bayonet, when he was apprehended in Bankstown.

The ABC understands the man was questioned two years ago by New South Wales Police and the Australian Federal Police over an incident at his school.

It is understood that incident involved him refusing to stand for the national anthem at the morning assembly of his school East Hills Boys High School.

He then allegedly made comments about Australia's involvement in the Afghan war. (End quote)

So what happened to that de-radicalisation programme for him over the last two years? Obviously a "fail".

So another youth running around with a bayonet - and they call us Aussies Islamaphobes!

Islamaphobes don't run around with bayonets, guns, knives or looking for ways to blow up innocent citizens - in the name of any religion.

Time for Government - on all sides - to call out these acts for what they are - sinister acts of terrorism, as such they should be put in jail with a minimum sentence of 30 years.

This article is timely - published the same day (12 Oct 2016) two knife carrying 16 year olds were arrested in Sydney.

See http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-10-13/terrorism-related-charges-laid-16-year-olds-sydney-bankstown/7928190 :

"...Two 16-year-old boys facing terrorism-related charges after their arrest in Sydney yesterday have been refused bail, with NSW Police saying they were about to commit an Islamic State inspired attack.

The teenagers were arrested by the NSW Joint Counter Terrorism Team at Bankstown in Sydney yesterday, in the lane behind a Muslim prayer hall.

They were found in possession of two large bayonet-style knives, bought earlier that day, and religious notes that allegedly pledged allegiance to Islamic State..."

Yes, flying planes into buildings doesn't work as well as lone wolf attacks on chocolate shops.
